to be thrown out. and since you're going to hear the memory of katrina invoked more and more in the coming days, like katrina, three days out, we're still learning about places receiving very little help and attention, like staten island. ann curry has more. >> reporter: brian, good evening to you, that is right, the outrage boiled over here in staten island, because more than three days after the hurricane here, people from the close-knit community accused them of responding much slower here than to the richer parts of the city. >> every single person on this block lost everything. >> reporter: staten island has had enough. >> we just want everyone to know that we are hurting down here and we need help, immediately. >> reporter: residents here are asking why hasn't more help arrived? >> i think we're not getting more attention, because we are a working class neighborhood. and it is kind of like fend for yourself kind of thing. >> reporter: on the streets hit with debris, where the death toll has gone up to at least 19, today, the fury was seen live on television. >> but you need to come here a
they have a lot in common with the people of the gulf coast who suffered through katrina in 2005. the sheer size and scope of the destruction from hurricane sandy stretches for hundreds of miles, from the jersey shore, to long island. this was a big storm, and has brought a significant part of the country to its knees. >> look at this line! it goes back -- this line goes six miles. look at this! >> reporter: with power still out to millions of people, one of the biggest daily concerns has become gasoline. some lines at stations that still have gas stretched for blocks. tempers of the drivers in those lines frayed. and police have even been called in to patrol the lines to keep the peace. >> i need to run my taxi too. >> reporter: there were some signs of meaningful progress. in new york city, more train and subway service was added. all told, the electricity is back on for more than 4 million homes and businesses across the northeast. >> oh, my god! >> reporter: this evening, the lights came back on in new york's greenwich village, something worth celebrating. and all but two of atlantic ci
comparisons to katrina, there's a reason for it. things are starting to look and feel like a deep, long-haul disaster. the grisly business of finding bodies, the daily realization that the face of the earth has changed, especially along the jersey shore. this is the new contour of the jersey shore. and right where we are is the borderline between two towns which have been in the news, bayhead to the north. six miles down is seaside heights, new jersey, almost impossible to see what's left of the ferris wheel and the amusement tower. from seaside heights, new jersey, this is what we found on the beach, one of the 57 chevy replicas that was part of the ride. the ocean gave this quite a ride. but just pause and think about the number of 4 and 5-year-olds who got their first thrill on a carnival ride at the beach right in this front seat with the safety bar down to protect them. there are two kinds of damage along the jersey shore. these are the first pictures taken from beach level of some of the fanciest sections. one of these houses was valued at $13 million the day before the storm arri
estimates. they're saying $50 billion. just to put this into perspective. katrina, with all the fatalities and the horrible scene with that, that was the worst ever at $106 billion. that was crazy. these numbers are adjusted for inflation. sandy up there with hurricane andrew. that was a category 5. sandy was a category 1 and did $50 billion estimated in damage. the other story is 7 million people without power. windchills in the 40s. you have people in their houses sleeping in the same bed with covers and blankets on top of them trying to keep warm. the storm sits over buffalo and will slowly exit. not soon enough. that's a look it's mostly a rain event. but umbrellas needed. >>> take a look at the radar and the soggy trick-or-treat forecast for the northwest a little later in the show. >> thanks so much. >>> also coming up, the presidential election is less than 140 hours away. sandy could end up being the major factor in choosing our next president. >>> plus years of medical research at one of the nation's top colleges destroyed by sandy. much more ahead this morning on "early today." >
katrina are inspiring one high school to come to the aid of hurricane sandy victims. help is on the way, and that's the message sent by errol heights students and faculty. the group is on a mission to send this semi-trailer stocked withed food, blankets and other helpful items. well, i'm lynn berry. this is "early today," just your first stop of the day today on your nbc station. >>> well, a dangerous fire forced officials to evacuate an entire town. close to 1,000 people received orders to abandon their homes. a chemical fire erupted from this derailed train car and then began leaking dangerous fumes. the evacuation order is still in effect until that fire burns out. >>> all right. new images show one animal's odd connection to halloween. a massachusetts fisherman caught this female lobster last week. look there. see? scientists say the crustacean, she is half orange, she's half black. the crustacean's split coloring happens every 50 to 100 million lobsters. that orange and black is the most common color combination. interesting. >>> well, class was in session when a drunken intruder b
$50 billion making it the nation's fourth costliest disaster behind katrina, 9/11 and hurricane andrew. >>> homeowners in new york, new jersey, and connecticut may be spared a costly deductible after state governors declared sandy did not make landfall as a hurricane. >>> and business is about to boom for companies that made oprah's annual favorite things list. a few of this year's favs, an $1800 battery and peddle powered bike, microsoft's new $500 surface tablet and a $40 blue velvet cake. you're watching "early today." >>> we are watching a nice weekend forecast shaping up in many areas of the west. only need the umbrella in a few spots. clouds lingering on the coast with on-and-off showers in areas like portland. temperatures seeable for this time of year. still lingering moisture in the northwest. looking mostly cloudy up there. nice in the southwest and areas traveling the inner mountain west, no problems whatsoever. enjoy your weekend. >> bill, thanks so much. >>> a bucks county, pennsylvania, family is still without power like millions of other power in the northeast. this fami
estimate, between $30 and $50 billion. that is considerably less than hurricane katrina, which reached $120 billion. but fewer people will be tydini out and shopping and we may see another spike in the price of gas because of closed refineries. also, earning reports will come in from companies listing the storm affecting the bottom line. the stock exchange and nasdaq will reopen for business tomorrow morning. so we'll get a chance to see how investors feel about the effects of the storm on our economy and not to mention how they feel about companies like apple and microsoft that made big news. one company that got a boost, netflix. the traffic doubled over the last couple of days on the east coast, as families hunkered down at home streaming movies as the storm hit. one thing to remember about natural disasters. they are often create jobs with so much infrastructure being damaged in the storm. a lot of state and local governments will likely have to put people to work over the next few weeks and months to fix things. raj? >> thank you, scott budman reporting from our news room. in about 20
and unwater the city of new orleans after hurricane katrina. >> many others have been dispatched from illinois to share what they learned from katrina several years ago. >> reporter: how much water do we need to pump out? >> our estimates at this point in time are 300 to 400 million gallons of water. and it's growing. >> reporter: and even though there's not as much overall as there was in new orleans, he says the job in new york is much more difficult. >> it's not the amount of water that's the problem, it's where it is. >> it's where it is, yeah. >> and where it is is underground in miles and miles of subway and road tunnels. >> some of those tunnels are up to 2 miles long. and the only points into them is at each end. and that requires us to have some pumping capabilities that perhaps reach 1/2 mile to a mile long. >> another problem, the age of the tunnels. new york's subway system is over 100 years old. >> some places we could probably pump out quicker, but we don't want to collapse the tunnel. >> the next challenge, where to pump all that water. >> largely mostly sea water. right now we'
with andrew which damaged his political career, it was damaged. of course george w. bush in 2005 with katrina. many people in the bush white house cite that was the low point of his presidency. a lot of dangers also, a lot of political opportunities. >> let's get practical. early voting is happening in these states. maryland cancelled early voting for the day. how much of an impact is that especially for the obama campaign is very much -- >> they are dependent on it, talking about it, counting on it. it does have an impact. it moves romney into an awkward situation. anything he does looks blatantly political or needy he's not in the equation when the country is under siege from a massive storm. >> the president of the united states went to the fema command center which by the way was it cynical or maybe the people running the campaign said we need to get him there. the president was doing what presidents do. what does mitt romney do? >> real quickly this close to the election does it matter if they got to cancel these rallies and what about their ad? if you're wall to wall coverage in these m
that came into the economy from federal payments and from insurance. katrina, $100 billion. again, it took a long time to rebuild. what i would say is the initial impact very, very bad, but when the federal government gets involved, waves its wand, and when insurers pay, you tend to have a very quick rebound that can actually help, if it's huge enough, the gross domestic product of the united states. >> i want to focus on that. not to be insensitive to what people are dealing with, but there are certain sectors of the economy that will benefit, i would assume, the construction industry to start with, one. >> yes. in hurricane andrew in 1992 the construction industry boomed. the lumber industry boomed. glass. a lot of companies simply had to send everything down to florida and that raised the price across the board throughout the united states. highly unusual. that was pretty much the only time that i have seen the gross domestic product really jump off of a hurricane. this could be like that. that's how big this one might end up being. >> and very quickly, i'm sure you had heard rumors, re
